    [Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's Likud party unexpectedly pulled ahead of his main rival in Israel's election, putting him in a leading position to form a governing coalition.]

    Congratulations to PM Netanyahu and our friends in Likud for the resounding victory. Now, all foreign interlopers who influenced the Israel election should be immediately imprisoned for election racketeering before they have a chance to return to Washington.

    The problem with storage is that volume capacity is finite.

    As the tanks fill up and storage becomes scarce, the prices come down.

    Any liquid commodity.

    It was so cold in NY that a flasher jumped out and described himself to me (credit to Johnny Carson).

    It was so cold in Boston yesterday that Senator Elizabeth Warren declared herself an Eskimo (credit to my friend in Boston, the most un-PC town in the world).

    Care to add any?

    Where are these jihadists in Europe getting these AK-47's to use on their murderous sprees? Where are the ISIS terrorists getting all those orange jump suits and black outfits? Seems to me that would provide a common supply link.

    Would that be considered an anthropomorphic effect upon financial markets? If so, we all all doomed. Doomed.

    Nice to see a concise post here at WSB/MKN. But do you have to be so entirely negative?

  • Wall Street Breakfast: Trouble Still Brewing In The Forex Market [View article]
    [Tony Pow: "I worked for myself writing software for Tandy computer. I was surprised my co-worker from one of my jobs remembered my one-man company Micro Architect. R.I.P."]

    I recall that Tandy Level I BASIC derived from Li-Chen Wang's work on Tiny B, while the manual was written by David Lien (http://bit.ly/1z4oDuh).

    Level II BASIC was licensed from Microsoft and it's been long reported that Bill Gates was the principal coder.

    There were Tandy TRS-80 clones from Aster (Holland), EACA (Hong Kong) and Lobo (South Africa?). And a few others I cannot recall right now. Each of them tweaked the software, as you well know.

    Tony, had to smile at the "Micro Architect, R.I.P."

    The Wang's of that era had a Star Trek game application that was quite good. No graphics; the Enterprise had to fly blind.
